SST The Federal soldiers at Memphis
have recently been paid off. It might
be supposod this would put as' op to
their pilfering, for a short time at least,
bat such is not the case.
Oa A. mighty effort should be made
not only to raise large crops of corn
and oats, but the urea devoted to po
tatoes, peas, sugar cane, beets, carrots,
parsnips, and every sort of vegetable,
should be largely increased. Profit
and patriotism both urge this policy.
Whether there bo peace or not, these
aticles must necessarily command
very high prices. In case of peace,
we should have enough d our own to
keep out Yankee product. A Maine
potatoe should never again be seen in
the South. If the war continues, a
large supply of everything that sus
tai life will be inditpcnsahl-to . the
well-bemsj of our army and the sue
teg of our cause.
Next Yankee Congress.
On tho 4th of March next, the pres.
ent Yankoo Congress ceases to exist.
It lias but two weeks remaining to
perfect tho vast iniquities which it has
inaugurated. Its successor will proba

have been held, and tho probablo result

uives the anti-I.adicals a small majori.

continue in tho Senate. But divided
Houses will effect little.
Tho new Congress, unless called to
gether by proclamation in extra ses

A writer on Moral I'hilosophy says :
"If a wild beast should attack user
onr habitations, wo should not hesitate
to slay him ; what ditferenco does it
make if that wild beast should come in
tho form of a human being."
Of all tho arguments that convince
the mind ot the lawfulness of taking
lifo in sell defence, none is so satisfac
tony as that contained in the brief ex
tract which we publish above.
Now, to carry out tho argument, it

nity, or a people if lions, tigers, or
hyenas should threaten to produce
general devastation in tho couutrv

justified but impelled by the strongest
obligations of duty to combine tor
their destruction ami overthrow ? Now,
we ask, what difference does it mako
whether such invaders come upon a
